Leaked emails expose UK Home Secretary Priti Patel’s connection to MI6-style ‘research and influence operation’
Wednesday, May 2022 — The Grayzone
A deeply anti-democratic MI6-linked cabal’s apparent influence on Priti Patel raises serious questions about her fitness to rule on Julian Assange’s extradition to the US.
Beware the Cult of Cadwalladr
Saturday, 22 January 2022 — Craig MurraY
The most important piece of information to come out of Carole Cadwalladr’s current libel trial is perhaps the least reported – that she received material alleging links between Arron Banks, Vote Leave and Russia from “a contractor to the UK security services”. The information came to light because under discovery rules she had to disclose a great deal of relevant material to Banks.
Voters are now turning against Brexit and Boris Johnson
16th November 2021 — True Publica
It makes no difference what side of the political debate you wave your flag for, trust in the Boris Johnson government has now almost completely collapsed. Whatever you believe, one fact stares us in the face – Britain’s politics is as divisive and toxic as ever and trust in politicians and our political system remains at all-time lows.
UK – The 10 steps of democratic breakdown
21 March 2021 — True Publica
By TruePublica: This article about Britain’s democratic breakdown was first published 29th January 2020 – and is ever more salient as each month passes with yet more characteristics of an authoritarian government being exposed every week.
The government knew about Covid in 2016 and failed to prepare
8th February 2021 — True Publica
TruePublica published an article in March last year, excerpts of which are below (HERE) regarding Britain’s preparedness plans in the event of a pandemic, which every responsible government in the world will have. The results showed how the Conservative government tested the NHS for a flu-like pandemic, such as Covid 19, over a three-day period in 2016 and then not only ignored its ominous warnings but buried the final report as investing in the NHS did not fit its privatisation agenda ambitions.
The UK’s Singapore-on-Thames Delusion
21 January 2021 — Economics of Imperialism
I will not spend much time on this topic because it is so ridiculous. But the notion that the UK can become a ‘Singapore-on-Thames’ seems to underlie some Brexit fantasies. Do these have any foundation?
Brexit trade agenda threatens disastrous deregulation
18 January 2021 — True Publica – Global Justice Now
The director of Global Justice Now, Nick Dearden makes an appeal to the public to support their work of restraining this government and its toxic policies centred around the recently negotiated Brexit deal.
Don’t forget who is coming to pillage post-Brexit Britain
14 January 2021 — True Publica
By TruePublica: No country has willingly left a postwar trading bloc, especially one of the three global super-powers of today. And because there is no precedent, it is true to say that not only does Brexit represent a very large threat to Britain’s economic future prospects – it does so because it’s just a gamble. And the so-called trade deal Boris Johnson has signed with the EU is very weak. Much of that weakness will develop over the coming months, especially as 80 per cent of Britain’s economy has yet to be negotiated within that agreement.
Genetic Engineering, Agriculture and Brexit: Treachery in Our Midst
9 January 2021 — Counter Currents
By Colin Todhunter
The UK government has launched its public consultation on the deregulation of gene editing in England. To kick things off, somewhat predictably Environment Secretary George Eustice recently spun a staunch pro-industry line at the Oxford Farming Conference by stating:
UK: Will they misuse these powers?
4 January 2021 — Good Law Project
Under cover of Christmas, with less than a day for scrutiny, and with No Deal as the only alternative, Parliament passed the European Union (Future Relationship) Act 2020. The process was described by the venerable Hansard Society as “an abdication of Parliament’s constitutional responsibilities to deliver proper scrutiny of the executive and the law” and a “farce”.
Meet The Anti-Regulation Groups Influencing Post-Brexit Trade Policy
27 November 2020 — DesmogUK
A handful of prominent individuals from anti-regulation thinktanks with close ties to International Trade Secretary Liz Truss have been appointed to top government advisory boards guiding the future of UK post-Brexit trade policy.
BREXIT: AN OVEN READY DEAL OR WAS THE OVEN EVEN SWITCHED ON. Populism in disarray
18 October 2020 — theplanningmotivedotcom
If Johnson was serious about a “No Deal Brexit”, his government would have prepared for one, particularly at this late stage. He would have put in place the necessary infrastructure – custom officers and posts, warehouses, tarmac, computer programs, a suite of forms available for companies and so on. Instead he has offered Porto Loos in Kent. To the chagrin of panicked importers and exporters, little is in place. According to the institute of directors, barely 50% of companies are ready. This is fortunate, because most have avoided the expense of a Hard Brexit or as it is now described, an Australian Brexit. Perhaps they clocked that there was always going to be a deal. Even the Tory Right “UK Freedom” fighters, who dabbled with“No-Deal”, know that in the face of a pandemic, a no-deal Brexit is economic suicide. Not so much throwing crates of fish overboard, as the gale sinking the whole damn fleet with all hands.
Why the Russia Report tells us more about Britain than anything else
Johanna Ross, journalist based in Edinburgh, Scotland
The long-awaited UK ‘Russia Report’, whose publication was delayed by 10 months by Boris Johnson, was finally released this week by the Westminster Intelligence and Security Committee, much to the excitement of those keen to demonstrate alleged ‘Russian interference’ in the 2016 EU referendum. However Britain’s ‘Russiagate’ has been something of a damp squib compared to the detailed, long-drawn Muller report across the Atlantic. In fact, anyone who was expecting any detail regarding the allegations of Russian interference would be sorely disappointed.
Get ready for ‘Shock and Awe’ Brexit propaganda campaign
26 June 2020 — True Publica
By TruePublica Editor: The governments’ overuse of militaristic, Churchillian and war-time cliches over Brexit and the pandemic is wearing thin and getting tiresome. But as Brexit day approaches, this is the mentality of a government obsessed with public relations. A mass propaganda invasion is to be aimed at every adult to overcome the Remainer enemy.
The tactics to be used will be based on behavioural science to get businesses and the public on side and to prepare for the end of the Brexit transition period.
Britain’s Last Gasp – Realising Life After Brexit
21 June 2020 — True Publica
This week marks four years of political acrimony in the guise of Brexit – the most divisive and toxic ideology to hit Britain since the Second World War. Having reached nothing more than a negotiated stalemate with the EU, the likelihood is that Britain will inextricably tie itself to a form of Atlantasism that will do irreversible harm to the British way of life. This is the ultimate desire of American born Boris Johnson and the shadowy and largely undisclosed free-market fundamentalists that support him. And as each day counts down and the dawn of 2021 approaches many will wonder how Britain ended up sacrificing itself to a dying financial doctrine and become a de facto playground for wealthy foreign asset strippers.
Into the heart of the NHS – an American backed spy programme at the centre of Brexit
28 May 2020 — True Publica
By Rob Woodward: Palantir is a special ops company. It is considered at best as a controversial and highly opaque company that has long sought to sell governments an unmatched power to sift and exploit information of any kind for any purpose. Its billionaire owner Peter Thiel, the co-founder of PayPal, through Palantir has worked for years to boost the global dragnet of the NSA and its international partners and was in fact co-created with American spies.
COVID-19 exposes the weakness of Brexit
30 April 2020 — True Publica
By TruePublica: There’s an irony being played out – a cruel one really. The COVID-19 crisis has unearthed some stark truths about how our country should be governed. One of those truths was just how important our key workers really are. Right now, the most dangerous job and most dangerous place in the country to practice it is to be a frontline medic in a hospital. This is closely followed by all other key workers that keeps the infrastructure of daily life moving. It is only in the face of a crisis that threatens us all do we remember this.

A new opinion poll found that 73 percent of Labour members think anti-Semitism in the party is exaggerated.
Kleptotors and the DWP
5th February 2020 — True Publica
By TruePublica Editor: You’ve just been unexpectedly transported to the alien nation of Kleptotors 186. The planet has substantial mineral wealth and food diversity and is populated with a sophisticated society arranged around the type of democratic principles we are used to back on Earth. Unfortunately, the wealth of the Kleptos has come about through corrupt leaders (see – dedicated Wikipedia page) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political powers. Sadly, this system involves the misappropriation of public funds at the expense of the wider population.
